Does Anyone Know About Kosher Food

My dd was just diagnosed with a severe sensitivity to casein, a milk protein, using IgG testing. So we're going to eliminate casein from her diet, which of course pretty much rules out milk, butter, etc. I realize that IgG testing may or may not be entirely scientifically reliable, but with all the discomfort and fatigue and pain that she experiences, we're willing to try this. In reading about casein, an article mentioned that Kosher dairy items do not contain casein. The article just kind of casually said that there are Kosher...

How to Get a 15 Month Old to Sleep Through the Night

My son still wakes up anywhere from 2 to 5 times a night. When he wakes up he wants his sippy cup. I am beyond exhausted and would like to enjoy a decent night sleep. Also how do I begin to ween him off of the sippy cup at night? I think its a security thing with him.

11 Month Old's Decrease in Fluid Intake and Constipation

Once again, I am tapping into the collective knowledge and experience of this awesome group! My 11 month old girl is not taking in as much fluid as she used to and is constipated. She used to take about 14 ounces of formula a day, plus what I mixed in with her and her twin brother's cereal. I also offer water in a sippy cup, which she only takes a couple sips of. Lately, her formula intake has declined to about 8 to 10 ounces a day. She is having at least 1 BM a day, but she cries/wails when she does it. It is a lot firmer than her...

My 13 Month Old Is Picky, picky...picky!

My 13 month old little guy is ALL boy, except for his eating habits. Ever since he's realized he can eat what mommy is eating (to a point), that is all he wants. But then when I sit him down in his high chair, he sometimes puts the food in his mouth, then spits it out. He will drink his bottles like they are going out of style as many times as he can during the day and will throw tiny fits unless he doesn't have his bottle (whole milk of course), or get whiney until we give them to him. He will eat some foods (cheerios, pastas of every...

Worried About Weaning at 1 Year

Hello moms. My daughter will be 10 months old next week and I'm planning to wean her at one year. She has been strictly breastfed (she never liked formula!). She started refusing a bottle around 6 months so my husband and I gave up and have been giving her a sippy cup ever since. She doesn't drink much from it and mostly chews on the spout and gets most of her liquids from nursing. I currently breastfeed her about 3-4 times a day and she gets 3 solid meals a day. What is the best way to wean her slowly without cutting her off cold turkey?...
